When earth's door shall close for me,
And the end of life shall come,
How I'd love to fall asleep
Like a child,
And -- listlessly.

As the child who hard hath played,
Fearless, weary, drops the toys,
Folded are the hands and still,
Blissful, calm,
And -- unafraid.

Longs my soul at peace to be,
In a land where dreams are sweet,
Then refreshed from sleep, again
Wake, live on,
And -- deathlessly.
